Cassidy Walker (She/Her)
Partner Relations Coordinator, Eastern Canada
Cassidy grew up on the shores of Lake Ontario, though she has always been drawn to the ocean. This led her to develop a passion for ecological conservation and a desire to better understand the human relationship to the earth. She later graduated from the University of Waterloo, where she completed her Bachelor of Environmental Studies in Environment, Resources, and Sustainability, with a Diploma in Environmental Assessment.
Through field courses in Waterloo and Huntsville, Ontario, Cassidy became very interested in aquatic species and their uses as ecosystem indicators. Cassidy spent much of her undergraduate degree researching the ecological importance of sharks and the consequences of climate change and human impacts on global shark populations. She then went on to complete her Master of Marine Management at Dalhousie University. During her time studying at Dalhousie, she was able to travel to Union Island, St. Vincent and the Grenadines to work with an environmental organization on the Ashton Lagoon restoration project. She was also able to utilize her scuba diving experience to assist on coral restoration projects in the Tobago Cays Marine Park.
Since graduating, Cassidy has remained in Halifax and continued to work in the field of sustainable ocean technology and marine conservation. Cassidy is excited to work with partners at all stages of the journey to more sustainable seafood.
